04/05/2017: Bury me, bury my horse

The life of a celebrant is certainly varied and full of interesting people. Take for example, a funeral conducted by Paul Smith recently.

A sensationalist headline could read "Woman buried with her horse". However, the sensationalist press, gladly, are not called upon to conduct funerals and deliver eulogies. The wishes of the deceased are deserving of much more respect than that.

As a lifelong, passionate horsewoman, the lady concerned had requested that the ashes of her greatly missed horse be buried with her. In fine style, the lady and her horse were eulogised and laid to rest in a shared grave, uniting them for ever.

This is just one example of the flexibility and freedom that becoming an independent celebrant offers. Making people happy at times of great sadness is a gift, this is a part of that gift.
